My Blooming Sunflowers

Many of you have commented on how eager you are to see our bed of sunflowers in bloom. They're now open - with their big daisy-like faces and brightly colored petals.

If you recall, my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, planted 12-rows of sunflowers, Helianthus, back in July. The bed is located behind my main greenhouse not far from my berry bushes. Sunflowers are the popular and cheerful annuals whose giant, round flower heads look like the sun. Sunflowers come in vibrant yellow, but they're also seen in orange, red, bronze and even white.
